Social Roundup: Fans and Journalists React to First IN THE HEIGHTS Screenings

In the Heights premieres on June 11, in theaters and on HBO Max.

The film adaptation of In the Heights recently held preview screenings and fans and journalists are reacting!

The story of Lin-Manuel Miranda's "In The Heights" is set over the course of three days in the vibrant New York community of Washington Heights - a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.

Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) directed the movie-musical. Anthony Bregman, Mara Jacobs and Scott Sanders produced.

The film stars Anthony Ramos, Melissa Barrera, Corey Hawkins, Leslie Grace, Olga Merediz, Jimmy Smits, Gregory Diaz IV, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha Polanco, Marc Anthony, and Noah Catala. Lin-Manuel Miranda and Christopher Jackson also appear in cameo roles.
